Lawsuit contends Rancho Cielo neighborhood not exclusive enough BY DAVID GARRICK, SPECIAL TO THE RSF REVIEW FROM U-T SAN DIEGO Five Rancho Cielo Estates homeowners are suing the developer of their upscale neighborhood, arguing it isn’t as exclusive as they were promised. The residents claim their luxury homes would be worth significantly more if the developer hadn’t begun allowing some smaller houses to be built in the 528-home neighborhood, and if all the amenities promised to early buyers had been completed. Those amenities include a competitionsized swimming pool, sauna, formal gardens, an equestrian center, a fitness center, a formal courtyard and a recreation center with multilevel terraces. Developer Rancho Cielo Estates LTD instead decided to build additional housing where those amenities had been planned, the suit alleges. In addition, the developer began allowing lots as small as 5,000 square feet, down from the 1-acre minimum originally promised. Homes in 1,740-acre Rancho Cielo, which is on the eastern edge of Rancho Santa Fe near Lake Hodges and Escondido, typically sell in the $2 million to $7 million range. Homes elsewhere in Rancho Santa Fe often sell for $10 million or more. Peter Fagrell, president of the company developing Rancho Cielo Estates, declined to comment on the suits. “It’s our policy not to discuss pending litigation,” he said. The lawsuit — a class-action filing that could eventually include more Rancho Cielo homeowners — says the developer used “high-end mass marketing” to dupe buyers. “A reasonable person would expect that if a seller in this type of situation represents certain amenities and touts SEE LAWSUIT, page 28

Longtime Solana Santa Fe teacher tackles new role as interim principal BY KAREN BILLING Solana Santa Fe School, located in the Fairbanks Ranch area, is starting 2014 with a different principal than the one that started the school year in fall 2013. The new principal, however, is actually a very familiar face in the community: Becky Gauthier, who has been a teacher at the school since it opened 21 years ago. Gauthier took over as

interim principal after new principal Stephan Bering suddenly announced his resignation just before the Thanksgiving break. “Solana Santa Fe is an amazing place and I think that’s what made my decision easy,” Gauthier said. “Having opened the school, there’s a sense of ownership, it’s something I have watched grow and morph

We’re a small school and everyone takes care of each other; we’re a family.” Gauthier is truly a local — she was born and raised in Solana Beach and went to

Solana Beach School District schools when the district consisted of just Skyline School and a school at the district office. She graduated from Torrey Pines High School and while she spent some time away for college and four years of teaching in Long Beach, she was called back home to San Diego.

Water district general manager reflects on challenges, accomplishments after a decade on the job • Mike Bardin continues to receive high marks from industry colleagues, board president BY JOE TASH Mike Bardin’s job is to make sure that when Santa Fe Irrigation District customers turn on their taps, clean, safe drinking water flows out. As the district’s general manager for the past decade, Bardin has dealt with a changing landscape in the water industry, from rising rates, to supply restrictions, to droughts. Earlier this month, California Gov. Jerry Brown declared a state of emergency due to the lack of rainfall throughout the state and urged residents to cut down on their water use. Now in his 10th year on the job, Bardin said San Diego County is in relatively good shape to handle a dry winter due to investments in water storage capacity in recent years, along with reductions in water use by customers. Although people in Northern California already face water-use restrictions, he said he doesn’t foresee such measures for residents of the Santa Fe district this summer, which includes Rancho Santa Fe, Solana Beach and Fairbanks Ranch. That doesn’t mean people can relax their vigilance when it comes to conserving water. “It’s almost a civic duty to be efficient with the use of water,” said Bardin, 55, a New York native who moved to California in 1980. Locally, the lack of rainfall means the Santa Fe district has had to rely more on “imported” water purchased from the San Diego County Water Authority, which costs more than local water stored in Lake Hodges. As a result, the district will pull $1.7 million from reserves this year to cover the increased expense, since no rate increase was imposed on customers for 2014. Still, Bardin expects the long-term trend of rising water costs to continue in the future. “There’s no two ways about it.” Water rates in California have basically doubled within the past 10 years. “Industry-wide, we’ve seen the cost of water go through the roof,” he said. “That’s a dramatic change and it’s had a lot of impacts.” In response, the district has cut costs, reducing its staff and trimming retirement costs among other actions, Bardin

said. Behind those rising costs, he said, have been a number of factors, including the investment in water storage facilities and infrastructure, the economic downturn and stresses on water supplies. Water suppliers have also turned to more expensive means of producing water, such as a desalination plant now under construction in Carlsbad. “All those things cumulatively add up to why

there is so much pressure on our rates to go up,” he said. In spite of the challenges faced by the water industry, Bardin has effectively managed the district and planned for the future, said Michael Hogan, president of the district’s board of directors. “The hiring of Mike as general manager has been a tremendous asset to the district. His public administration and management capabilities are superb,” said Hogan. Among Bardin’s major accomplishments, said Hogan, was working with the board to develop a strategic business plan to achieve the district’s goals. As part of that plan, Hogan said, district staff conducted a complete inventory of all of its assets, from pipelines to treatment plants to pumping stations. “Before there was never an assessment of the infrastructure as there is now. That has allowed the board to make decisions on where to apply financial resources as part of our financial plan, and to minimize our risk of failures,” Hogan said. During Bardin’s tenure,

One proposed plan would have benefitted districts with their own local water supply, such as Santa Fe, to the detriment of others that purchase all of their water from the County Water Authority. According to Arant, Bardin advocated a more balanced approach that was equitable for all of the local agencies. “He rose above his parochial interest and advocated for something more important for the region,” Arant said. ‘”Mike is very well thought of by his fellow managers and regarded as someone who is reasonable and practical,” Arant said. Although he has worked in the wastewater and water industries for 35 years, Bardin said he’s not quite ready for retirement. Before coming to Santa Fe in 2004, he worked for the city of San Clemente, a joint powers agency in Orange County, and the Leucadia Wastewater District. “I don’t see myself being done, I see myself being in the middle (of my career) and having a lot to offer,” he said.

the district has invested some $30 million in infrastructure improvements, and has compiled a $60 million capital improvement plan. Bardin drew praise from his water industry colleagues in San Diego County. “He’s really been one of the general managers in the county that has both local perspective in his district and a regional view of things. He’s really been a leader among the general managers,” said Ken Weinberg, director of water resources with the County Water Authority. Over the years, said Weinberg, Bardin has worked with other agencies in the region on such issues as drought management and the permitting process for the Carlsbad desalination plant, which is expected to be in operation by 2016. Gary Arant, general manager of the Valley Center Municipal Water District, said that as the desalination plant was being developed, there was a lot of discussion as to how the costs of the project would be allocated among local water agencies.

Heroic dog loses life protecting siblings from coyote attack in RSF BY CITY NEWS SERVICE A coyote killed a 3-yearold Jack Russell terrier and injured two other dogs in a rare daytime attack in the yard of a Rancho Santa Fe residence Jan. 22, and officials with the Helen Woodward Animal Center issued a warning in hopes of preventing similar incidents. According to officials with the center, Evon Warner left her four dogs in her fenced backyard as she left to run an errand about 11 a.m. Jan. 22. When she returned less than an hour later, she found her 2-year-old Dachshund ``Heiny’’ suffering from bite wounds to his stomach and shoulder; her 8-year-old Poodle-terrier mix, ``Lily,’’ with severe wounds to her head and neck; and 9-year old Shih Tzu, ``Mikey,’’ uninjured. The Jack Russell terrier ``Wyatt’’ was fatally injured. ``I’m sure he was protecting them,’’ Werner told center officials. ``He was fearless. He had to distract the coyote to save them.’’ Werner said neighbors told her they had heard noises then saw a coyote jumping over her 7-foot steel fence. A coyote bite to the

Residents learn about financial scams at local event BY KRISTINA HOUCK From fake lotteries to fake online daters, more than 30 million Americans fall victim to financial fraud every year, according to a guide by the National Center for Victims of Crime and the FINRA Investor Education Foundation. The San Diego County Sheriff’s Department expects to receive scam cases totaling more than $1 million this year, said Sgt. Joe Ellis. “Financial scams — it’s a very large problem,” said Ellis during a financial crimes talk Jan. 22 at an event held by Del Mar Community Connections at the Del Mar City Hall Annex. “Every week, I’ve got several cases where someone has been scammed.” To raise awareness and prevent crime, Ellis discussed new and continuing scams during the talk.

RSF firefighters respond to fatal accident on Del Dios Highway Heiny and Lily find comfort in one another. Courtesy photo neck tends to be fatal as coyotes instinctively break the necks of their victims, according to the Helen Woodward Animal Center. The two injured canines were treated at Helen Woodward’s Companion Animal Hospital and were placed on antibiotics and pain medication, according to animal center officials. Helen Woodward Animal Center and the Companion Animal Hospital staff said pet owners should keep pets inside between dusk and early morning — when coyotes primarily hunt for food — and use a short leash if heading outside for a bathroom break. Pet owners should also avoid leaving food in their yards, including pet food and fruit that has fallen from trees. Nighttime walks should be avoided or, if absolutely necessary, pet-owners should use a very short leash. Backyard fences should be at least 6 feet high to prevent coyotes from leaping over. Coyotes are also known to dig, so animal center officials recommended installing a vinyl lattice 2 to 3 feet below ground.


On Jan. 26 at 7:07 p.m., firefighters from the Rancho Santa Fe Fire Protections District (RSFFPD) responded to the report of a motorcycle verses pedestrian accident on Del Dios Highway near Date Lane. Upon arrival they discovered two individuals, one the motorcycle driver and the other a pedestrian that had been hit by the motorcycle, down an embankment on the east side of the highway. The pedestrian was confirmed to be deceased. The driver, despite receiving advance life support, was also pronounced dead at the scene. The Sheriff’s Department helicopter assisted in searching for a potential third patient but none was found. The California Highway Patrol closed Del Dios Highway in both directions for three hours during the incident and investigation.

Here’s to

CCA De-Evolution robotics team members: (L-R) Kian Sheik, Noah Sutton-Smolin, Tristan Murphy, Alex Quan, Christian Cooper. Not pictured: Mariella Gauvreau, Ryan Lee, and Yousuf Soliman. Noah and Tristan are holding the two trophies for winning the Inspire Award and for Captain of the Winning Alliance.

Double win for CCA’s De-Evolution robotics team Canyon Crest Academy’s robotics team, De-Evolution, has now qualified to compete in the Los Angeles regional competition, after the team’s double win at the L.A. qualifying tournament held Jan. 25 in Glendale. De-Evolution has already qualified to compete in the upcoming San Diego regional competition with the team’s double win in December at the Escondido qualifying tournament. Going into the semi-finals at the L.A. tournament, De-Evolution was ranked Number 1 out of 30 teams and maintained its top position, remaining undefeated the entire day. A double win means the team qualified twice for Regionals, by being named the winner of the coveted Inspire award as well as being the captain of the Winning Alliance. De-Evolution placed second internationally three years ago, as a rookie team. Four members of that rookie team, now CCA seniors, remain on the team. De-Evolution has now won the Inspire Award at both qualifying tournaments, which is considered more prestigious than winning on the field. The Inspire Award is described by tournament organizers as a team that is “a top contender for all other judging categories and is a strong competitor on the field.” The Inspire Award winner, organizers say, “is able to communicate their experiences, enthusiasm and knowledge to other teams, sponsors, and the judges, [and] will have demonstrated success in accomplishing the task of creating a working and competitive robot.” De-Evolution received a standing ovation from the other teams when it was announced the team had won the Inspire Award. “Winning the Inspire Award is an unexpected honor,” said Noah Sutton-Smolin, DeEvolution’s co-president and programmer. “We never strive for the Inspire Award for its own sake. Historically, our team has been about building the best robot possible. This year, though, the focus of our team has shifted from winning the competition to helping others succeed. “The teams at the competitions are wonderful, as always. The cooperative spirit of the events is fundamentally perspective-altering, as it grows into more than simply a competition for awards.” De-Evolution is a FIRST Tech Challenge (FTC) team, with eight members this year, and is CCA’s after-school FTC robotics team. FTC teams are limited to 10 students in grades 7-12. Based in Manchester, New Hampshire, FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) is an international robotics competition founded by inventor Dean Kamen in 1989. A non-profit organization, FIRST [] was created to inspire and motivate students to excel and pursue careers in engineering, science and technology. De-Evolution team members are committed to advancing understanding of robotics in middle and high schools and to spreading the message of the excitement, team spirit and intellectual stimulation that FIRST competitions provide. Any local schools wishing to start a robotics program are encouraged to contact De-Evolution to schedule a visit or demonstration. De-Evolution will now compete at the San Diego regional competition Feb. 15 and at the Los Angeles regional competition Feb. 22. The winning teams at Regionals will advance to the Super-Regionals in northern California in March. The winner there will compete internationally in April. The public is welcome to attend and cheer on De-Evolution at the San Diego Regionals on Feb. 15 at Madison High School in San Diego.

A decade of research leads to publication of RSF Literary Society author’s ‘The Lady in Gold — The Extraordinary Tale of Gustav Klimt’s Masterpiece, Portrait of Adele Block-Bauer’ BY JOE TASH Anne-Marie O’Connor’s immersion into the world of Viennese art and society at the turn of the 20th Century — followed later by the theft of countless art treasures from Viennese Jews by Nazis and their collaborators — began with a tiny item she read in a Los Angeles community newspaper in 2001. O’Connor was then a reporter for the Los Angeles Times, and her curiosity was piqued by the blurb about Maria Altmann, a local woman who claimed that a famous portrait by the artist Gustav Klimt had been stolen from her family by the Nazis. She called Altmann and was invited to her home. “She sat me down and made me Viennese coffee and told me this very long, complicated story about her Aunt Adele… a woman of today living in the world of yesterday,” O’Connor said, imitating Altmann’s Austrian accent. “There was a Downton Abbey aspect to the whole thing that was very seductive to me.” That initial meeting led O’Connor to research and write for more than a decade about Altmann, her family, and some of the world’s most valuable paintings, culminating in 2012 with the publication of her book, “The Lady in Gold — The Extraordinary Tale of Gustav Klimt’s Masterpiece, Portrait of Adele Block-Bauer.” O’Connor was the featured speaker at the Jan. 27 meeting of the Rancho Santa Fe Literary Society, held at The Grand Del Mar Resort (see event photos, page 8). Along with her talk, O’Connor presented a slide show of photos she had gathered during her research on the project.

Literary Society President Candace Humber, “The Lady in Gold” author Anne-Marie O’Connor, Northern Trust Wealth Strategist and chapter leader Gayle Allen, Northern Trust San Diego region President John Ippolito. Photo/McKenzie Images “The Lady in Gold” comes during a resurgence of interest in the subject of Nazi-looted art, due to the recent revelation of a $1 billion cache of stolen art discovered by German authorities in Munich, as well as a soon-to-be-released film, “The Monuments Men,” directed by George Clooney, the story of a platoon of art experts charged with rescuing stolen masterpieces near the end of World War II. Back in 2001, however, numerous Angelenos reported having lost art to the Nazis, and none ever got their paintings back, O’Connor said in an interview before her talk. Altmann’s case, according to legal experts, seemed likely to fall short. But somehow, Altmann’s attorney, Randol Schoenberg, the grandson of a famous Viennese composer, kept winning legal skirmishes. Everything came to a head in 2006 when an Austrian commission determined that a number of Klimt paintings that were then hanging in Vienna museums had been stolen from Altmann’s family and must be returned. “That was a real come-to-Jesus moment for Austria,” said O’Connor. It was disturbing to Austrians who had been able to look at these paintings all their lives, but suddenly found the artworks telling a different story. “It was kind of an ugly, tragic story with a lot of culpability to go around,” O’Connor said. After that ground-breaking decision, O’Connor decided to write her book. Ultimately, five Klimt paintings were returned to Altmann and the other living heirs, who sold them for more than $300 million. The most famous, the “Portrait of Adele BlockBauer,” was sold for $135 million to the Neue Galerie in New York City, where it is available to be viewed by the public. The other Klimts recovered by Altmann’s family are in private hands. Altmann died in 2011, at age 94, shortly before O’Connor’s book came out. The book is populated with prominent members of Vienna’s Jewish society, as well as celebrities including composer Gustav Mahler and his wife, Alma; writer Mark Twain; psychoanalysis founder Sigmund Freud; and Hollywood notables such as director Billy Wilder and actress Hedy Lamarr. The story follows family members from their well-appointed Vienna salons, to notorious concentration camps and prisons, to the United States and Canada, where those who managed to survive the war emigrated. Along with the interviews O’Connor conducted in the U.S. and Europe, the author combed through thousands of documents, including memoirs provided by family members. Because she doesn’t speak German, O’Connor had to have many of the documents translated. The book also details how as many as 14 Klimt paintings were destroyed when SS officers burned down an Austrian castle where the paintings had been stored, as a final act of defiance at the end of the war.

O’Connor now lives in Jerusalem with her husband, Washington Post reporter William Booth. She writes freelance articles for the Post, along with op-ed pieces about Nazi art theft for various publications, while considering her next book project. Although Adele BlochBauer had requested in her will that her gold portrait be donated to a Vienna museum after the death of herself and her husband, she died in 1925, before World War II and the Holocaust. Had she lived, said O’Connor, she probably would have changed her mind. New York is a fitting place for the portrait to end up, she said, because many Viennese Jews run out of Europe by the Nazis immigrated to America. “They loved Vienna and they thought Vienna loved them back,” she said. “They felt very betrayed after the war.” For more information about O’Connor and her book, visit www.; “The Lady in Gold” is available at major book stores and web sites, including and

A Retrospective í6HOOLQJ5HDO Estate in San Diego for 100 Years Willis Allen Real Estate is celebrating its centennial this year. For 100 years Willis Allen has been a continuously operating and highly successful real estate brokerage, which was founded in La Jolla. It’s such an incredible milestone, and one we’ve been anticipating for years. It has made me sentimental about this company, about my personal history with it, and about the people who are at the core of its success.



I feel very privileged to have the opportunity to lead this company into the next century.

It all started back in 1914. The company has been around as long as the U.S. Naval Base in Coronado, Spreckels Theater, the San Diego Zoo, the Grand Colonial Hotel, and even electricity in La Jolla. When company namesake, Willis M. Allen was at the helm, staff sold mortgages using a mobile RIÄ‚FH WKDW RSHUDWHG RXW RI D well-equipped Volkswagen bus!

and brightest agents – and going above and beyond for our clients – has remained consistent. We diligently train, educate and mentor our agents to make sure we are giving you, our clients, the best advice. Each of us at Willis Allen is proud of our company’s heritage, to our unwavering commitment to sage and appropriate counsel, and to our strong support of our local communities. Many of our agents have been with us for 20plus years, and some have been Willis Allen associates for 30 years or more. The supportive environment and tremendous respect for our peer group is imperative to maintaining our success for the next 100 years. Throughout the years Willis Allen Real Estate has literally made its mark on the San Diego landscape. Willis Allen was one of the major partners in the famed La Valencia Hotel.

Through many decades our sales staff has committed itself to the support of our community by volunteering their time, talents and treasures to hundreds of ORFDOQRQSURĂWJURXSV I feel very privileged to have the opportunity to lead this company into the next century. I’ve always loved real e state, though I haven’t always made the best real estate decisions! I remember back in 1960 I had an opportunity to purchase a vacant lot in an undeveloped area east of Nob Avenue in Del Mar for $700. I had just turned 16, and I decided to use my savings to purchase a 1955 Chevrolet instead. Adults told me I had made a mistake, and I guess they were right. That lot today is probably worth close to $1 million. It was a lesson learned



for me, and one that shaped my future. I believe all of us can build our wealth, our portfolio, by investing in real estate. I joined the company in 1977. My kids grew up in the real estate business, and I feel fortunate that my two sons have embraced careers in the real estate profession. They are both focused – with real estate degrees – and are greatly respected, not only by Willis Allen agents, but also by our competitors. Our family is committed to ensuring that Willis Allen will be here for years to come – focused on you, as sellers and buyers, and on our communities. We UHPDLQ ĂHUFHO\ LQGHSHQGHQW and committed to service that is best for our clients and our community. We are San Diego’s greatest champion, her biggest fan, and we’re proud to call this beautiful place home‌and to help our clients do the same. Thank you for trusting us with your buying and selling needs for the last 100 years. We look forward to working with you again in Willis Allen’s next century of service.

Not possessions, but gifts: my family, my friends, and my health — three things I try every day not to take for granted. What do you do for fun? I enjoy spending time with my family, watching movies, exercising, sampling San Diego’s outstanding microbrews with my friends, and — of course — reading.

Rancho Santa Fe Review

RSF resident’s band to let it ‘Roar’ as opening act in show at SOMA BY KAREN BILLING Rancho Santa Fe musician Javon Shapouri is making some noise with his band Roar Like Me. The Canyon Crest Academy senior and his band recently won the chance to open for an international touring act from Germany named We Butter the Bread With Butter on March 6 at SOMA in San Diego. “We are good at engaging the audience and entertaining during live shows,” said Javon, who plays guitar for the group that includes lead singer Zachary Salazar, Scott De leso on drums and David Johnson on bass. Recently Roar Like Me played the Carlsbad Marathon, memorably motivating and “waking up” the athletes as they ran the course. The band took their motivational duties seriously and rocked so hard they left the race as battered as a marathoner. While they have played several shows since forming in early 2013, the group’s first bigger show was held on Jan. 9 at SOMA. The band members sold out their allocation of tickets and then sold out all the extras they were given. On the night of the show, the audience was packed for their performance. That night persuaded SOMA

Rancho Santa Fe’s Javon Shapouri (second from left) is playing lead guitar in Roar Like Me, with bandmates Scott De leso, Zachary Salazar and David Johnson. Photos/Fintan Roche to book the band for the show March 6 with We Butter the Bread With Butter, who promise to bring with them a large crowd. “SOMA was the best venue we’ve played, and we had the most people and the best crowd. We actually had a lot of Marines because we played the Freedom to Rock show at Camp Pendleton and a lot of the Marines became fans and came down, that was pretty cool,” Javon said. Javon was inspired to start

guitar lessons as a middle-schooler after “long road trips listening to Metallica” and hours logged mockrocking on “Guitar Hero.” He started taking lessons and classes at The Fine Tune Academy in Carlsbad, a contemporary music school in North County run by Fintan Roche. The academy offers lessons, multimedia courses taught by a faculty of successful working musicians, numerous performance opportunities and musicians

Javon Shapouri on guitar networking. “The school sets you up, especially the recording arts class if you want to do anything on the production side of music,” Javon said. “Fine Tune is good for any level, from the basics up to the connections in forming the bands.” It was through Fine Tune that Javon was able to meet up with his fellow bandmates that he might not have met otherwise. Javon is the youngest band member, the only one still in high school, and while they’re all very different

individuals, they all share a love of all things metal. “We all bring something different,” Javon said, noting that he offers not only his talents on the guitar, but his music-writing skills as well. Along with Johnson, he’s helped write many of the group’s original songs. Javon said it’s exciting to be onstage and a real rush. Like the band’s name might suggest, they play pretty serious metal, and Salazar does get the chance to scream. Fine Tune’s Roche said Javon is very dedicated to his musical craft but also has other goals as well: he would like to earn his medical degree. Javon said he is a “big science guy” and is he is able to pursue paths in both of his passions with the science curriculum at CCA, as well as taking on the school’s unique rock band class. Javon says he has two ways he can go between music and medicine, but for now he is just enjoying the approving roar of his audience.

Canyon Crest Academy’s Creative Writing Club to hold 2nd Annual CCA Writers Conference Feb. 22 The 3rd Annual Canyon Crest Academy Writers Conference will be held on Saturday, Feb. 22, from 9 a.m.-3:30 p.m. at Canyon Crest Academy, Proscenium and Media Center, 5951 Village Center Loop Road, San Diego, CA 92130. The event is for high school students, and is free. Students should register by sending an email to: Best-selling authors and many other writing professionals will provide inspirational and educational workshops to students of San Diego-area high schools. Because of the generosity of conference sponsors OSIsoft, Summa Education, Entangled Publishing, and Chipotle, as well as fundraising by the Creative Writing Club, this event is free to high school students. Jeff Copeland, assistant principal at CCA notes, “Canyon Crest Academy is excited about once again hosting the Writers’ Conference. The fact that last year we had almost 120 students participate from 12 different schools just goes to show the value that our kids place on this type of experience. This is an opportunity for students to learn and to grow as writers and as human beings, and if there is one thing that today’s students cherish above all, it is learning. We once again thank each of the authors who have agreed to participate in this conference. We very much appreciate their dedication to helping our young people become lifelong writers and readers.” Milan Perisic, teacher advisor to the Creative Writing Club, is impressed by the hard work of club members. “For the third consecutive year, the CCA Creative Writing Club, with the support of parent volunteers and community sponsors, has organized a free writers’ conference that offers students the opportunity to learn about the creative writing process from authors who have been successfully published. Students who have attended the conference in the past have overwhelmingly expressed their enthusiasm for the experience and insights they’ve gained in the process. I am excited to hear this year’s panel of speakers and encourage all students to attend the conference.” Devyn Krevat, president of the Creative Writing Club, founded the conference in 2012, a year after attending the SDSU Writers Conference. “The Creative Writing Club has been working hard since October inviting speakers, welcoming sponsors, and spreading the word about the conference. We are very grateful to our sponsors and speakers who make the whole day possible.”

Tasting Party launches ‘auction season’ for The Bishop’s School

The Bishop’s School’s annual fundraiser “All Aboard! U.S.S. Bishop’s,” the 2014 auction co-chaired by current Bishop’s parents Alice Hayes of La Jolla and Rancho Santa Fe residents Dawn Calvetti and Margot Kerr, will be held on the school’s campus on April 12. The auction season officially launched on Jan. 25 during the school’s Tastings Party, an evening of delicious food and wine held at the Rancho Santa Fe home of Bishop’s parents Tricia and Raymond Faltinsky. All Aboard! U.S.S. Bishop’s, the school’s 29th annual auction, will feature a dinner for 500; dancing to the electrifying entertainment of Jay Sterling Music; a wine auction; and live and silent auctions with an emphasis on items that offer unique experiences. Funds raised at the April 12 event will support the school’s “Student Need-based Financial Aid and Faculty Professional Growth Programs.” Each year, The Bishop’s School annual auction raises approximately $1 million in direct support of these two “crucial programs.” For information on All Aboard!

The Jesse Lynch Trio perform at R. Roger Rowe School as part of Community Concerts of RSF’s Community Outreach program The Community Outreach program is a vital part of Community Concerts of Rancho Santa Fe’s service to Rancho Santa Fe and surrounding areas. The afternoon prior to their evening concert at Fellowship Hall, the members of The Jesse Lynch Trio performed at the R. Roger Rowe Middle School, giving the children a taste of good jazz and skilled musicians, with a little musical education thrown in for good measure. Jesse Lynch taught the children the purpose of each instrument in the trio — bass, drums, and piano — and each musician demonstrated accordingly. Then the entire group put it all together in beautiful music, demonstrating jazz, swing, melody, harmony, and improvisation. Lynch described music and improvisation as having a conversation while playing, each watching and listening to others for cues. And jazz, for example, was like a language. Lynch quizzed the children and was surprised to receive very competent answers to many of his questions. RSF School District Superintendent Lindy Delaney was not surprised. She said that of their 700 students, 230 are in some form of band, orchestra, choir, or theater. Clearly, she was so proud of this and excited that their program continues to grow each year. The students were a responsive and wonderful audience for the Jesse Lynch Trio. — Gail Kendall

Project Raw serves healthy smoothies to the hungry BY KRISTINA HOUCK For more than a year, a few locals have supplied thousands of healthy smoothies to the homeless and hungry in San Diego County. In an effort to reach even more people, Solana Beach-based Project Raw is going public with a launch party Feb. 12 at the Belly Up Tavern. “That’s the motivation behind our launch party — to get the word out on what we’re doing,” said Del Mar resident Aubrey Hackman, director of Project Raw. “The more that we get the word out, the more resources we have to pull from.” Founded as a flexible purpose corporation in December 2012, Project Raw aims to promote the positive effects of a raw food diet on personal health, communities and the environment. According to a 2012 report from the Natural Resources Defense Council, 40 percent of food in the United States isn’t consumed, amounting to $165 billion a year in waste. Nevertheless, 49 million Americans live in food insecure households, which means they lack regular access to healthy, nutrientdense food, according to the United States Department of Agriculture. In 2013, Project Raw served more than 22,000 smoothies to food-insecure people in San Diego County, saving more than 6.5 tons of food and totaling $110,000 value for the community. “There’s tons of food insecure people around San Diego County and there’s a lot of free food,” said Project Raw Co-Founder John McGuire. “It was pretty easy to make a big difference just because we were staring with such a big gap.” The idea for Project Raw came about Christmas Eve 2012. John McGuire’s brother, Brian McGuire, purchased a blender for his brother, his friend — retired Major League Baseball player Cole Liniak — and himself. The three agreed to a

SPOTLIGHT on LOCAL BUSINESS ASAP Urgent Care in Encinitas provides emergency room-like care at a low cost BY KRISTINA HOUCK For three years, patients have avoided long lines and extra paperwork by visiting ASAP Urgent Care in Encinitas. With 15 years experience as an emergency physician, Dr. Matthew Kurlan designed the walk-in clinic so patients can “get emergency room service at the family doctor price.” “Having experience in the emergency department, I just imagined what we needed to do to make this experience as quick and simple as possible for patients,” said Kurlan, who owns and operates the clinic. Kurlan earned his degree at the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey and completed his residency at Midwestern University in Chicago. Prior to launching his urgent care practice, the New Jersey native practiced as an emergency physician and department director for 15 years in the Midwest. “I think part of the frustrations people have with going to the doctor is there are too many forms to fill out and there is too much waiting time. You also never know what the bill is going to be,” he said. “I thought I could do it a little better and faster.” ASAP Urgent Care focuses on acute medical problems that are urgent but not serious enough to warrant hospital services. To keep costs low, ASAP Urgent Care does not accept insurance plans. For patients with insurance, the clinic provides a form with billing codes to submit for reimbursement. This saves time by eliminating most paperwork. On average, patients are in and out the door within 30 minutes, Kurlan said. “We see a lot of patients who either don’t have a family doctor or can’t get an appointment right away. Their only alterative is to go to the emergency room, and everybody is afraid to go to the emergency room because it’s so expensive and it takes so long,” said Kurlan, a member of American

Academy of Urgent Care Medicine. “It’s a very scary place to be. “We fill that niche and we really take pride in what we do. We try to make it a very easy experience for our patients.” ASAP Urgent Care is located at 519 Encinitas Blvd. in Encinitas. The clinic is open 8:30 a.m.-6 p.m. Mondays, 8:30 a.m.-4 p.m. Tuesdays and Wednesdays, 8:30 a.m.-2 p.m. Thursdays, 9 a.m.-3 p.m. Saturdays, and 9 a.m.-2 p.m. Sundays. The clinic is closed on Fridays.

Rancho Letters to the Editor/Opinion Santa Fe San Dieguito Union High School District Review Superintendent Rick Schmitt’s Monthly Update 3702 Via de la Valle Suite 202W Del Mar, CA 92014 858-756-1403

U-T Community Press Publishers of Rancho Santa Fe Review Gold Ink Award Winner, California Newspapers Publishers’ Association Award Winner, Independent Free Papers of America Award Winner, Society of Professional Journalists Award Winner


Superintendent Rick Schmitt plans to update the greater San Dieguito Union High School District community through our local media with a monthly update. Topics covered will include curriculum, facilities, budget, safety, and other specific and special interest topics. Today’s update focuses on our gradual and multi-year transition to the Common Core State Standards (CCSS). BY RICK SCHMITT The San Dieguito Union High School District (SDUHSD) is in the midst of making the transition to the new Common Core State Standards for English-language arts and mathematics. As part of this transition, we’ve faced several key decisions relating to curricular approaches to mathematics and math course sequences. Earlier in the fall, SDUHSD made the decision toRick Schmitt adopt an integrated curricular approach to mathematics rather than the traditional pre-algebra, algebra, geometry and algebra II approach. After reaching this decision, our next task was to develop the course offerings and sequences available to our students as we transition to new math courses over the coming three years. With this work now complete, we’ve begun the process of reviewing instructional materials for adoption in support of our new math courses. In developing our course offerings and sequences we’ve ensured that we continue to offer a range of courses including college preparatory, honors, and intervention courses for students who are below grade-level in math. We’ve also ensured that students and families will continue to have access to acceleration options and honors courses at each grade level along with a variety of Advanced Placement courses at the high school level. We are excited to begin implementation of these new courses at grades 7-9 in the 2014-15 school year. For more information about SDUHSD’s new math course sequences and our transition plan for current SDUHSD students, please see the District’s newly developed Common Core informational website at This site contains a variety of information and resources for parents about the Common Core State Standards and SDUHSD’s transition to the Common Core. Besides the website resources, we have scheduled a series of Common Core Information sessions for current SDUHSD parents. Jan. 29 - San Dieguito Academy, Media Center Jan. 30 - Canyon Crest Academy, Band Room Feb. 3 - Oak Crest Middle School, Media Center Feb. 4 - Earl Warren Middle School, Warren Hall Feb. 5 - Carmel Valley Middle School, Performing Arts Center Feb. 11 - Diegueño Middle School, Media Center Feb. 25 – Spanish Language CCSS Info Session – San Dieguito Academy Library Meetings at Torrey Pines High School and La Costa Canyon High School have already taken place. Parents may attend any meeting. Beginning in February and March, SDUHSD representatives will also visit the various elementary schools that send students to our district to discuss the CCSS and the transition to our schools. Dates, times, and locations for these sessions will be announced in the coming weeks. You can follow Superintendent Schmitt on Facebook,, and Twitter,

LAWSUIT continued from page 1 a certain ‘exclusivity,’ then the community should have those amenities and that status,” the suit says. The homeowners’ attorney, Lee Sherman, said recently that the neighborhood his clients were promised wasn’t delivered. He declined to say what the homes of his clients are worth, or what they would be worth if the community had been built as initially planned. But he said analysis of sale prices in the area shows his clients lost a lot of money. “The value of land decreased in a way that was inconsistent with the market, once the high-density projects got rolling,” he said. Plans for Rancho Cielo were initially approved by

the county in 1981 but have been amended at least six times since then. While some amenities have been eliminated, two parks have been built and a 9-acre recreational area is planned for the undeveloped northern section of the neighborhood when housing is built there, county documents show. Homes in the eastern part of Rancho Cielo are under construction, while the southern and western portions of the neighborhood have been partially developed. Sherman said he expects the number of plaintiffs in the suit to increase. About 50 Rancho Cielo homeowners recently attended a community meeting about the case, he said. In addition to reimbursement for financial losses, the suit asks the court to impose punitive damages to

discourage future alleged fraud of a similar nature. Turbulence in Rancho Cielo began to increase in 2012 when the developer proposed building 42 condominiums at the neighborhood’s southern edge off Del Dios Highway. County supervisors rejected the proposal, but last August approved 24 single-family homes for the same area, which straddles Via Ambiente. A group of residents has appealed that approval and filed a separate lawsuit contending the environmental analysis is flawed because it relies on studies conducted in the 1980s. “Traffic on Del Dios Highway is a lot different now than it was then,” said Escondido attorney Everett Delano, who filed the suit.

Fix Congress First BY CARL DEMAIO CANDIDATE FOR U.S. CONGRESS 52ND CONGRESSIONAL DISTRICT Tired of Members of Congress passing laws for us to live under, but exempting themselves? Now more than ever before, we need a Congress that works for us – not the other way around. The double standards and special privileges in Washington have to end. If we want better results from Washington, we have to start by changing the culture of special privilege that politicians have created for themselves. That’s exactly why I’ve proposed my Fix Congress First Plan – which would impose a number of accountability and transparency reforms on Congress. Judging by the defensive response by incumbent politicians like Scott Peters, you can bet Washington politicians won’t like it. My plan starts by eliminating the special exemptions for Members of Congress and requires that they live under the same laws they pass for us. During the Bob Filner sexual harassment scandal, Filner demanded that taxpayers pick up the bills for his bad behavior because he claimed he did not get sexual harassment training while in Congress. Guess what? Filner voted to grant Members of Congress a special exemption from the same sexual harassment training mandates that other federal managers are subject to. The special exemptions continue with Congress exempting itself from a wide range of workplace safety rules, whistleblower protections, and even open government requirements on the disclosure of records to the public under the Freedom of Information Act. My Fix Congress First Plan also eliminates the lavish pensions and special benefits for Members of Congress. Just as I did here in San Diego, I propose to eliminate politicians’ pensions and enroll them into retirement benefits benchmarked to the penny against what taxpayers – the ones who foot the bill – receive. Those ObamaCare subsidies we’ve read about recently? Under my plan, they’re gone. If ObamaCare is so great for the rest of us, Members of Congress should receive no better and no worse. Also gone are the free travel junkets for Members of Congress paid for by special interests, like the $1.7 million that was spent alone on travel by outside groups in August 2013. My Fix Congress First plan would also end the current practice of politicians passing bills they have not read, only to plead ignorance when we find out later that the law is unworkable or filled with giveaways to special interest groups. My plan calls for all of Congress’ legislative bills to be on a single subject to prevent unrelated amendments filled with benefits for special interests. To force transparency on the process, all laws would be posted online for public review for at least 72 hours before a vote is scheduled. Finally, Congress should be held accountable for doing its job. If you don’t show up for work, you don’t get paid – at least, that’s the way it is for most Americans. If you don’t produce a budget for your family, or you build a small business and don’t figure out how to pay for your employees, you suffer the consequences – so why should Congress be any different? It only makes sense that if Congress fails to pass the budget, every Member of Congress should permanently forfeit their pay for each day the budget is not done. As we have seen too many times, Congress is not open to change. Many in Congress have grown accustomed to the system from which they benefit. Nevertheless, we have a record of successfully getting big reform done in San Diego – even over the opposition of entrenched politicians. When I first introduced our landmark Pension Reform Initiative, many observers said it could not get done – but by working together, we built a broad coalition across San Diego and successfully put those important reforms into place. Making these common-sense reforms are not Democrat or Republican issues – they are wholeheartedly American issues with the goal of making our government work again. I’m confident by building a case for reform and engaging the people in the process, we can repeat our success with making a reformed government we can be proud of again. …and it all starts with fixing Congress first.

coming the principal. “It was hard to leave, it was an amazing class. I still go in to visit all the time,� Gauthier said. “(As principal) I visit all of the classrooms because I want to be on campus and know what’s going on and the only way to know that is to be in the classrooms.� So while she visits them all, there is one class she admittedly has a sweet spot for. Gauthier has had her administrative credential in her back pocket for the last 19 years and was never sure she would have the opportunity to take a leadership position. But when asked to take over the school by district superintendent Nancy Lynch, Gauthier stepped up to the task. Being an educational leader was no problem for Gauthier, but it has been a big learning curve understanding all of the many things an administrator is

responsible for, figuring out how to handle all of the different scenarios and situations that arise. “My fellow staff members have been so incredibly supportive. They are a phenomenal staff, very professional and competent and really supportive of me so that helps,� said Gauthier, who had a mentor for 21 years in former Principal Julie Norby, now at the district office as the director of instructional services. The district will likely make a decision regarding a permanent principal in the spring and whether Gauthier will shed her “interim� title isn’t yet known. “There are things I miss terribly about being in the classroom but, in life, you have to grow and change and take on new challenges and this has definitely been that,� Gauthier said. “Sometimes opportunity knocks. I opened the door. There’s been a learning curve but it’s exciting.�

Other scammers pretend to be a bank or credit card company representative and ask for the victim to verify his or her information. To reduce your risk of becoming a victim and protect your finances and identity, Ellis said to never provide your information over the phone unless you initiated the call. You should also always

If it looks illegitimate, you’re not going to fall for it. “If it looks like a duck, moves like a duck and sounds like a duck, it’s a duck.

Rancho Santa Fe Review

‘The Who & The What’ pokes at tradition versus modern life BY DIANA SAENGER Considering the growing diversity of our country’s population, “The Who & The What,” penned by Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Ayad Akhtar, is a timely look at a conservative Muslim family in Atlanta. The production will have its world premiere at the La Jolla Playhouse, Feb. 11 – March 9. Zarina (Monika Jolly), now married to Eli (Kai Lennox) is a smart and outspoken young woman who has written a new book about women and Islam. Its release sparks disagreements with her conventional father Adzal (Bernard White) and sister Mahwish (Meera Rohit Khubani). Directing the action is Kimberly Senior (“The Whipping Man”) who directed Akhtar’s acclaimed “Disgraced.” Senior said she wanted to work with Akhtar again, but was also impressed by the attention “The Who & The What” garnered at its developmental reading last year during the Playhouse’s inaugural DNA New Work Series. “When I came for the first rehearsal and a public reading at the Playhouse, it was so special,” Senior said. “I’ve been working professionally in theater for 20 years and have never experienced such an authentic engagement with the audience and material. At that moment, I knew we were working with something special.” Senior said the theme of “The Who & The What” is love. “First it’s a laugh-out loud comedy, but it’s also a poignant, rich story about faith, the struggle between passion and reason, and the search for love — both familial and romantic. “It’s also exciting when we see actors on stage as the main characters of this play, regardless of race and creed, as they are the heart of this family,” she said.

January 30, 2014

Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Ayad Akhtar’s latest is “The Who & The What.” The subject of people from other countries and differing beliefs living successfully together is an ongoing challenge, globally. “And we don’t have a model for it,” Senior said. “It’s a new way to see how our older religions, faiths, traditions and rituals interface with a modern global world, and how we maintain what makes us individuals.” Finding the right actress for the role of Zarina was important to Senior. “Monica did an original reading for us last year and eventually an audition,” Senior said. “Then we audi-

tioned about 75 women coast to coast and realized she was actually the right one for the role. She’s terrific, as is all the cast.” Senior said she believes the characters are people everyone will relate to. “Everyone has parents who want their children to get married, and it’s usually normal for some children to be defiant,” she said. “I hope that as people watch the play, they will think, ‘these people are just like me.’ “The way this play affects me with its challenge and joy, and the way I see it affecting others, is an amazing way to touch other people’s lives. It’s about love and how we need equal doses of reason and passion. Maybe those who see it will go to sleep at night thinking differently than when they woke up that morning and that’s exciting.”

You can hang a blue ribbon on this pizzeria! BY KELLEY CARLSON hen Wade and Kristi Hageman decided to open Blue Ribbon Artisan Pizzeria, they took a gamble and emerged as winners. “We put all our money into it,” Wade Hageman said. Fortunately, “We had a line coming out of the door from Day One. The community has been nothing but really supportive.” Hageman — a protégé of Wolfgang Puck — was looking to set up a restaurant that had the same food quality as the high-end restaurants in which he was accustomed to working, but one that was more affordable and comfortable for his family and friends. So he established a casual pizzeria that is often animated with chitchat and rock ‘n’ roll tunes, where people can enjoy cuisine worthy of fine dining. With the menu, Hageman takes an organic, sustainable approach, and he uses as many locally sourced ingredients as possible. “People can taste the difference,” the chef said. Guests can try for themselves through offerings that range from appetizers and pizzas, to soups and salads. A popular starter is the Heirloom Wisconsin Black Seed Popcorn, seasoned with truffle salt and Parmigiano Reggiano. Another is the Albacore Tuna Crudo with Hass avocado, ruby grapefruit and lemon olive oil. But the center of attention is the artisan pizzas, which are not the typical Italian Neopolitan pies: they’re more Americanized, with a browner, crispier crust. Made from dough that undergoes a three-day fermentation process, the pies bake next to burning white oak in a all-wood oven. One particularly unique kind of pizza is

Bass player Nathan East to headline concert benefit at UCSD

The Jesse Lynch Trio: Joe Michaels, Jesse Lynch and Tyler Dempsey. Photo/Jon Clark

Review: Live on stage with Community Concerts of RSF: The Jesse Lynch Trio presents a dazzling history of jazz REVIEW BY DR. JACK WHEATON When we walked in to the concert hall Jan. 17 and saw the grand piano, the amplifier for the string bass, and the drum set, it looked like my set-up I used for so many years at the University of Southern California. I wondered if they would use my text as well – “All That Jazz, a History of Afro-American Music” – still available through The performance by The Jesse Lynch Trio — Jesse Lynch Jazz 101 — was a multi-media production chronicling the history of jazz through 101 years, spanning the roots of jazz in New Orleans, to the heyday of swing and bebop, all the way to today’s contemporary jazz artists, including some of Jesse’s own compositions. Appropriate images played on a video screen relative to the decades being showcased. The players not only played but, taking turns, introduced the next number, including its origin and background, composer or musician who made it famous, etc. Something different was going on with this concert – a new dimension – photo narrative backgrounds were creating an entirely new art form. We no longer had just a performance, we had a beautiful “lecture’ concert!” Jazz 101! When Jesse Lynch (pianist) walked on stage and began to play one of the hardest classical piano works — “Fantasie Impromptu” by Chopin — we knew something different was happening. He told us that all “early” music was improvised and then written down. What tonal memory that took! Jesse played this most difficult work perfectly, without a pause, and without a music sheet. The rest of the program was an examination of new jazz styles in each era – late 1800s through the 20th century and up to the present. This examination divided the program into musical examples relative to that particular decade. Late 1800s – jazz’s beginnings… Now, on to business. Joe Michaels (bass) walked on stage along with Tyler Dempsey, drums; the trio was ready to go – the images on the screen reflected the music scene. First, Scott Joplin’s famous “Maple Leaf Rag,” a lively typical, early jazz composition – well done! Early 1900s – 1910s: Next on the program was the early 1900s, with images of Jelly Roll Morton, Bessie Smith (blues singer) and others of that period on the video screen. Lynch and the gang chose to play a slow blues, “How Long,” and portions of W.C. Handy’s famous “Saint Louis Blues.” 1920: Blues singers shown on the screen behind the trio were Blind Lemon Jefferson, Huddy Leadbetter, and other well-known blues singers of that period. After 1924 jazz was a true piece of art, not just background for dancing or singing. 1930s and ‘40s: The greatest musical example performed for this decade was Benny Goodman’s “Sing, Sing, Sing,” initially performed in Carnegie Hall in 1938. This was a great crowd pleaser and featured Tyler Dempsey on drums. Summary: Other artists in the program by the trio included Erroll Garner’s, “Misty,” “Pick Yourself Up” from the movie “Swing Kids” (Fred Astaire, Ginger Rodgers), Duke Ellington (composer-band leader), Art Tatum (piano) – and many others from the ‘50s to the present. Styles of jazz analyzed and examples played included the Blues, Ragtime, Dixieland, Swing, Boogie-Woogie, Bebop, Cool, Latin Jazz, Jazz/Rock, and other later styles. The concert was well organized, the players were outstanding, but the carefully selected photographs and artwork behind the trio were the icing on the cake. They introduced another dimension, allowing for “eye candy” (the photos and paintings), as well as the music. What grade would this retired university professor give this group? An “A” — what else! In my informal chat with the trio after the concert I told them that not only was the playing and staging excellent, but educational as well, allowing many in the audience to learn much about America’s only art form: Jazz. The next concert presented by Community Concerts of RSF is Feb. 28 and will feature Locust Street Taxi, known for the musicians’ exuberance and spontaneity. Tickets may be purchased online at, or by mail: P O Box 2781, RSF 92067.

Chances are you’ve listened to UC San Diego alumnus Nathan East all your life. You just may not know it — yet. East is one of the world’s top bass guitarists, a Grammy nominee who has played with the likes of jazz, rock and pop royalty from Michael Jackson and Eric Clapton, to Paul McCartney and Beyoncé. The 1978 UCSD grad (a native of San Diego and graduate of Crawford High School) will return to his alma mater for a one-time public performance “Eastbound: Home” 3-5 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 1, in the Conrad Prebys Concert Hall on UCSD campus. Proceeds will be used for scholarships for students attending UCSD’s Thurgood Marshall College who graduated from The Preuss School UCSD, a charter school for low-income students who strive to become the first in their families to graduate from college. East’s concert arrives on the heels of a performance for millions around the globe at the 56th annual Grammy Awards Jan. 26, where he will join Daft Punk to perform their chart-topping hit, “Get Lucky,” along with Pharrell and Stevie Wonder. East provided the baseline for the song, which is nominated for 2013 Record of the Year.

Nathan East The UCSD appearance will feature East performing with local jazz musicians and friends, members of his family, and former UCSD professors including Cecil Lytle. The event is part of the annual Lytle Benefit Concert series, which raises funds for undergraduate scholarships—a cause that is especially close to East’s heart. “In addition to playing with the likes of Clapton and Madonna, East has topped Billboard jazz charts with his band Fourplay, and will release his first solo album, ‘Nathan East,” on March 25. East began his music career as a teen when he was hired by Barry White for a national tour. He became a member of the Love Unlimited Orchestra playing Madison Square Garden, the Apollo Theater and other major venues. In 1978, East earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Music Performance from UCSD. He began work on a master’s degree when instructor Bertram Turetzky suggested he already had enough education and it was time for him to move to Los Angeles to start his lucrative music career. “The rest, as they say, is history,” said Lytle, who is a former professor and friend. Tickets are $75, $60 for alumni, $20 for students with ID (students from all schools welcome). Parking is free. Tickets will be held at the door.

The Grand Del Mar ranked No. 1 by TripAdvisor BY LORI WEISBERG, SPECIAL TO THE RSF REVIEW FROM U-T SAN DIEGO San Diego’s Grand Del Mar has amassed an impressive collection of accolades since opening in 2007, but this year marks the first that it has earned the distinction of top hotel in the nation, a ranking based entirely on guest reviews. TripAdvisor, the world’s largest online travel site, recently released its annual Travelers’ Choice Awards, which besides rating the Grand Del Mar the No. 1 U.S. hotel, also ranked it 14th in the world and top luxury hotel in the country. Only one other California property was voted into the top 10 U.S. hotels — the 62-room Bardessono in Napa Valley. The latest honor comes less than a week after the 249room hotel learned it had once again earned five-diamond ratings from the Automobile Club of Southern California for both the resort and its fine dining venue, Addison. Owner Papa Doug Manchester credited the hotel’s emphasis on grooming and nurturing a staff of top-notch employees for its consistently high rankings. His daily presence — he owns a home on the Carmel Valley property — also likely contributes to the staff’s desire to excel, he said. “You can have the best carpet, the best Venetian marble, the best draperies, wonderful rooms, which we do, and we spent an enormous amount of money providing that, but you have nothing if you do not have the right personnel and the management to look out for the little things,” said Manchester, who is also publisher of U-T San Diego. “Whether it’s the person who greets you at the door, the concierge or housekeeping, they all have a vested interest in making you feel good because they feel good working there.” Unlike the annual rankings assembled by the Auto Club and the Forbes Travel Guide, which make visits to the properties they evaluate, TripAdvisor relies on millions of online guest reviews of more than 700,000 hotels for compiling its awards. That explains why its annual top 10 list tends to vary quite a bit from year to year. The Grand Del Mar, the only hotel on this year’s list to make an appearance in the top 10 three years in a row, was No. 10 last year, while the No. 1 hotel in 2012, the Elysian

TripAdvisor reviewers say The Grand Del Mar is the top hotel in the country. Courtesy photo Hotel Chicago, didn’t even crack the top 10 this year. “Winners do change from year to year, based on what the reviews are saying,” said TripAdvisor spokeswoman Julie Cassetina, noting that the hotels must have 30 rooms or more and a traveler rating of at least 3.5 stars. “We also use algorithms that are proprietary to TripAdvisor for making the selection.” Not only is the ranking a significant bragging point for the Grand Del Mar, but it’s also helpful in marketing San Diego to tourists, observed Carl Winston, dean of the San Diego State school of hospitality. “A high rating helps all the hotels,” he said. “It gives additional impetus for people to look at San Diego when they make their

travel plans.” With an employee-to-guest ratio of close to 2 to 1 and a rigorous orientation and training program, the Grand Del Mar is better prepared to cater to the needs, no matter how small, of those staying there, says Grand Del Mar president Thomas Voss. An impressive resume with years of experience does not necessarily trump the human qualities job applicants display, he added. The pay, he noted, is fairly comparable to what is offered at other luxury properties. The employees’ work ethic is driven mostly by a sense of pride, Voss said. “When the person shows up for an interview, we can see how they speak, how they behave,” said Voss. “We want people who are genuine and gracious, who want to

work at a five-star hotel.” He said he tries to instill a close, collegial atmosphere so that the employees feel as though they’re part of one big family. Voss knows every one of the more than 500 employees by name and makes a habit of lunching with them in the cafeteria. “For me, the employees come first, they dictate what we serve in the cafeteria, and we don’t micromanage.” Manchester, former owner of the 1,362-room Manchester Grand Hyatt, which he sold for $570 million in 2011, acknowledged that to sustain a high-end, highly rated resort can be a costly venture that doesn’t necessarily yield the higher profits of a busy convention hotel. “In most luxury hotels throughout the world, probably the majority are not making as much money as they could if they did not provide some of the services they’re providing,” he said. “But we’re happy with providing the very best, and this award is a great tribute to San Diego.” For more information, visit

Breast cancer survivor designs stylish turbans for women When Shiva Moradfar lost her hair while battling breast cancer, she didn’t feel beautiful — until she began decorating her turbans. “I lost all of my hair and I had to wear a turban,” Moradfar said. “When you don’t have hair, a turban really seems flat on your head. I thought maybe I should do something to look better.” Moradfar added beads and other materials to plain turbans. Her friends and other cancer patients took notice. “People kept saying they are beautiful,” she said. “People like them, so I thought, ‘Why not help others?’” Born in Iran, Moradfar has lived in the U.S. for more than 30 years. A mother of two, Moradfar was first diagnosed with breast cancer in 2007. Doctors discovered her cancer returned when she went in for reconstruction surgery. She had a mastectomy and chemotherapy. After she was diagnosed

with breast cancer for a second time, Moradfar, relocated from Carmel Valley to Los Angeles in 2010 to live near her mother. Now, she is collaborating with Los Angeles-based Fashion Service Group to develop and promote her products. “I am so passionate about this,” Moradfar said. “My dream is to make people that are going through cancer still feel beautiful. After going through what I went through, I want to give back.” For questions or comments, email Moradfar at dmchodesign123@gmail. com. For more information, visit

Rancho Santa Fe Review

Local restaurant celebrates grand opening with charity fundraiser BY KRISTINA HOUCK Locals celebrated the grand opening of a new sweet and savory pie shop on Jan. 25 with food and a fundraiser. Located in Encinitas, Betty’s Pie Whole Saloon teamed up with See Beneath, a San Diego-based nonprofit organization that creates early developmental tools for children with autism. Baker Elizabeth Harris has supported the organization since it was founded in 2012. “I just think it’s such a creative, unique idea,” said Harris, who also owns Elizabethan Desserts, a pastry shop that opened in 2006. See Beneath’s first product is an animated video titled “Aiko & Egor,” which follows a purple whale and an orange blowfish in their underwater adventures. The pilot episode focuses on object imitation, gross motor imitation and gesture imitation. Gerin Gaskin, Casey Hoffman and Jim Turner launched See Beneath two years ago. At the time, Gaskin and Hoffman were working in the UCSD Autism Intervention Research Program as early childhood interventionists. “We worked really closely with a lot of children who were labeled atrisk for autism under the age of 3,” Hoffman said. “We found that there aren’t a lot of autism-specific products for families and children out there. Families are trying to find anything that their child can enjoy while learning.”

Funds raised through donations and a silent auction at the grand opening of Betty’s Pie Whole Saloon will help the See Beneath team complete the first season of “Aiko & Egor.” The roughly 10-minute episodes will focus on a variety of developmental areas, such as preverbal language, expressive language, initiations, pre-academic and academic skills, play skills, social routines and more. “People really liked the pilot episode and children seemed to really respond to it, so we’re working on a full six-episode season,” Gaskin said. The See Beneath team has planned on co-hosting an event with Harris for months, Hoffman said. Harris recently moved Elizabethan Desserts to a new location nearby and transformed her original bakery into a Western-themed space. From cherry to meatball, Betty’s Pie Whole Saloon specializes in whole sweet and savory pies. “Elizabeth is just really inspiring because she’s such a powerful woman. She has these ideas and she makes them come true,” Gaskin said. “Betty’s is one of the coolest places in Encinitas. I love the décor and I love the feeling — and the pies are amazing. It’s just so wonderful to be able to celebrate Betty’s and See Beneath at this event.” In addition to supporting See Beneath, Harris has been a longtime supporter of Mama’s Kitchen, a nonprofit organization that delivers free meals to

She participates in the organization’s annual Mama’s Day event and Mama’s Pie in the Sky Thanksgiving Bake Sale. “I’m not a wealthy person, so it’s the way I can give back — through product and feeding people,” Harris said. “Even when you don’t have any money or you don’t have a lot of money, you can still give your time or you can still give your resources.” Located at 155 Quail Garden Drive in Encinitas, Betty’s Pie Whole Saloon is open 11 a.m.-7 p.m. Monday-Friday and 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Saturday.

Ask the Plastic Surgeon BY REZA SADRIAN, MD Q. I’m thinking of having a body contouring plastic surgery procedure to celebrate the New Year, but I gained some weight during the holiday season. I’ve heard that it’s better to lose weight prior to having a surgical procedure. What do you advise? A. I highly recommend weight loss prior to scheduling a plastic contouring procedure to optimize your results. According to a recent study by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, published in October of 2013, obesity is a predictor of potential postoperative surgical complications and an increase in percentage of body fat is often associated with increased surgical complications. During the study, a total of 438 patients, ages 18 to 64 who elected to have surgery, were included in the study. Body fat percentage measured by bioelectrical impedance analysis (BIA), was assessed during the preoperative examination. Overall, a total of 52 patients who were diagnosed as obese experienced complications. These were patients were defined as obese (14.1 percent body fat) utilizing percentage of body fat as a prerequisite with a significantly higher rate of postoperative complications in comparison to

REZA SADRIAN, MD those defined as non-obese (6.8 percent body fat). I often meet with patients during a consultation who express a desire to resculpt their physique, but have not taken care of their bodies through proper nutrition and exercise. These candidates are often prescribed a low-calorie, balanced diet accompanied by a regular fitness regimen in order to optimize their plastic surgery results. Our practice recently partnered with the premier weight loss experts, PFC Fitness, headquartered at the Omni La Costa Resort and Spa in Carlsbad, who provide optimal health and lifestyle transformation results through nutritional classes, fitness training as well as work-personal life balance along with pre-surgical weight loss and post surgical rehabilitation. Our patients who wish

to lose weight prior to undergoing plastic surgery procedures while experiencing hands-on instruction on the basics of nutrition and fitness for a lifetime of health and well being beyond the operating room can benefit from this program. This partnership with PFC Fitness further cements our commitment to providing enhanced services while maintaining the highest level of integrity to our patients by helping them transform their lives not only physically, but also by guiding them to a pathway of lifelong health. Reza Sadrian, MD is one of very few plastic surgeons on a nationally recognized level dually certified in plastic and reconstructive surgery as well as oral and maxillofacial surgery. He is a Diplomate, American Board Plastic Surgery and serves as Medical Director for the Plastic Surgery and Laser Institute of San Diego.

Rancho Santa Fe Review

January 30, 2014


The Bridges at RSF demonstrates strength in real San Diego Wine Affair returns Feb. 22 estate transactions and membership in 2013 The Bridges at Rancho Santa Fe, one of the nation’s most prestigious golf course communities, sustained positive momentum in 2013, adding 50 new club members and recording a 52 percent increase in real estate transactions within the gates of the community. Ten new social memberships and 40 new golf memberships were sold last year, including seven national members, eligible to join at The Bridges because their primary residence is outside San Diego County. Among the new national members are residents of Boston, Northern California, Las Vegas, Palm Springs and Mexico City. The Bridges also added five junior members in a special new category created exclusively for local golfers under the age of 40. Junior members are entitled to the same use privileges as equity golf members but with reduced monthly dues, commensurate with their age. As of January 2014, there are only two equity golf memberships remaining to sell. Within the gates of The Bridges, 30 real estate transactions closed escrow last year for a total sales volume of $87.3 million. In 2012, there were 21 closings valued at $57 million. “Interest in living here and experiencing The Bridges lifestyle continues to grow thanks to our nationwide reputation for world class service and facilities,” said Ken Ayers, development director at The Bridges, who noted that it is not necessary to live at The Bridges in order to join the club. This past summer, The Bridges completed a series of upgrades and improvements to its 6,965-yard championship course. During

some of his off-season time, member Phil Mickelson lent his expertise to a redesigned chipping and practice area. “The new chipping green matches USGA specifications and allows golfers of all capabilities to work on their short game,” said Ayers. “The expanded practice area offers both undulated and flat surfaced shots, additional targets and two new bunkers so players can practice shots reflective of those he or she will face on the course.” Overlooking the golf course and surrounded by vineyards, the 36,000-squarefoot clubhouse at The Bridges features architecture evocative of a Tuscan hill town. Renowned for its casual elegance, the club showcases a superior culinary arts and wine program with 11 unique menus in four dining facilities. Chef Chris Buffin creates seasonal menus showcasing just-picked produce from the club’s organic garden, while sommelier Mark Valin is available to help members with pairings and recommendations for their personal cellars. Other family-oriented recreation facilities at The Bridges include world-class facilities for tennis and recreation, workout classes and personal training, as well as bocce and other court sports. A full calendar of events provides supervised activities for children and professionally staffed classes and outdoor adventures for all levels of membership. For membership information, contact Gordon Cooke at 858-756-8055. Real estate inquiries should be directed to Bob Jackson at The Bridges at Rancho Santa Fe Sales Company, 858-756-8700;
